and think the same way that Christ Jesus thought:[a]

Christ was truly God.
But he did not try to remain[b]
    equal with God.
Instead he gave up everything[c]
    and became a slave,
when he became
    like one of us.

Christ was humble.
He obeyed God and even died
    on a cross.
Then God gave Christ
    the highest place
and honored his name
    above all others.

10 (A) So at the name of Jesus
    everyone will bow down,
those in heaven, on earth,
    and under the earth.
11 And to the glory
    of God the Father
everyone will openly agree,
    “Jesus Christ is Lord!”
